After a disappointing loss to Centennial on Wednesday, the MUSTANGS dropped down into the losers bracket and faced Gorman, in an elimination game today and loss 9-1 to the defending champs.
The Gaels had their ace on the mound, after he had been on the shelf for the last 4 weeks. With multiple pitches being thrown for strikes, the MUSTANG batters had their hands full today. Fast balls where coming in at 89-93 MPH, sliders and curves to battle as well.
But in the top of the seventh, with one out, Quinn Ayers met on of those fastballs, and sent it over the left field fence, for the MUSTANGS only run of the game. Way to go Quinn, at least the shutout was broken up.
Well folks, that does it for another season at THE RIDGE, many memories and some heart aches! For the Seniors, some move on to the work force, other heading to college, whether for academics or academics and continued baseball endeavors.
For the Juniors on the team this year and Sophomores coming up from the JV squad, the time is now, to work hard and earn a spot on next years VARSITY squad, to shoot for the goal of making the playoffs, being Sunset Division Champions, and then winning State, and being declared STATE CHAMPIONS OF NEVADA!!!
God Bless ALL you young men, and may you futures be bright!!!
